Zen Series: using essential oils for hypertension

Zen Series 
High blood pressure, or hypertension, is one of the most common health challenges many of us face today. Uncontrolled hypertension leads to a whole host of problems that often do not become evident until the damage is done. Conditions we don’t want like stroke, heart attack, and congestive heart failure, to name a few.

Consider the many options that are complimentary to both allopathic and alternative medicine. Learn how to control high blood pressure with the help of therapeutic-grade essential oils along with vigilance and a commitment to a healthy diet and lifestyle.

Oils studied and tested for High Blood Pressure (Hypertension): ylang ylang, marjoram, cypress, lavender, ocotea, clove, Idaho balsam fir, goldenrod, neroli
